What are the SOF Imperatives?
Global violent extremism and near-peer threats are increasing against a backdrop of U.S. Department of Defense budget pressure and political polarization in Washington, D.C. It is more vital than ever to educate our political leaders on the pivotal role of U.S. Special Operations Forces (SOF) as an essential tool in combating these national security threats.
The Global SOF Foundation develops an annual Imperatives for SOF platform document to support this education.
